Our team provides efficient crawlspace solutions and maintenance that prevent excess moisture out of this area and rest of your home.
At LC Myers Environmental, we have extensive experience in dealing with mold, and we want to help you prevent mold problems as much as possible. To protect your home or business from a mold infestation, you will need to take steps to prevent excess moisture from building up. In our experience, a great deal of excess moisture enters buildings from below via the crawlspace, so we offer effective crawlspace solutions to prevent this from happening.
The main problem with crawlspaces and moisture arises from the fact that the crawlspace has no floor, but instead is exposed to the bare earth. This means moisture from the soil can evaporate and rise into the air, where it then condenses on the walls and on the underside of your subfloor. Some of that moisture also rises through the floor and into the building itself, where it can continue to cause problems and encourage mold growth.
Our crawlspace solutions typically take the form of encapsulation, which involves installing waterproof sheeting on the walls, ceiling, and floor of your crawlspace to keep all the moisture out. Depending on the severity of the moisture problem, we may also install fans or dehumidifiers to remove moisture and keep this area even dryer.
We are proud to serve the Charleston, South Carolina community, and we want to help you do what’s best for your home. If you are interested in learning more about our crawlspace solutions, just give us a call today.
